It's been four years since the second season of Stranger Things aired. The show was released on 27th October 2017. Apart from the main cast, it also featured new characters; Sadie Sink who played Max Mayfield and Dacre Montgomery who played Billy Hargrove.
Today we are gonna look at the six best moments from Stranger Things season 2.
For those who don’t remember, Barb was Nancy’s best friend in season 1. She was attacked by the Demogorgon and was stuck into the Upside Down. Hopper and Joyce found her dead body in the Upside Down when they were searching for Will. We did not witness a proper goodbye for her. It was one of the main talking points for fans as they thought that nobody cared for Barb. Hence a campaign Justice For Barb was started and the actress who played Barb also weighed in by posting it on Twitter. Barb didn’t come back from the dead but this season showed that she was not completely forgotten. Nancy (Natalia Dyer) and Steve (Joe Keery) have dinner with the parents. She was finally properly laid to rest with a funeral and in a way, justice was served.
Will Byers (played by Noah Schnapp) was missing for most of season 1 as he was in Upside Down. In this season the relationship between him and Mike as best friends was beautifully conveyed. When WIll was possessed by Mind Flayer, he still managed to communicate with Mike through Morse code. The actor Noah Schnapp also impressed the fans with his acting skills.
The death of Bob Newby was a bit predictable but Sean Astin still managed to win hearts with his incredible performance. He was the boyfriend of Joyce Byers and worked as the manager at the town's local Radio Shack. He gave solid advice to Will about standing up to his fears. Before his death, he was planning to move away from Hawkins along with Joyce and her sons. So it was still sad to see him go.
Max (played by Sadie Sink) was a new character introduced in season 2. She became the love interest of Lucas and Dustin while Mike did not like her initially. She was putting up a lot from home by her stepbrother Billy Hargrove (Dacre Montgomery) but she still managed to stand on her own. In the end, she did join the gang.
Season 2 was themed at Halloween and we did see the characters celebrating it in style. The gang Mike, Will, Dustin and Lucas wore Ghostbusters costumes that looked incredibly beautiful. It was a nice touch to see a reference from the '80s.

The second season was closed with a prom and brought all the characters together. Not everybody got what they wanted; especially Dustin who was then consoled by nancy after being ignored by Max. But it was nice to see them together dancing to the tunes of Time After Time.
